Here at Murphy Gozzard we pride ourselves on providing a very special salon experience, based around our artisan skills and genuine love of our hair community. It’s important to us that everyone who visits the best hairdressers in Paddington feels welcomed and understood and we strive to create an environment which fosters that for each and every individual- with no exceptions. We have even been named Tried, Trusted and Tested and given the Gritty Pretty stamp of approval. In the interests of making every salon appointment a positive one, here we suggest a few ways to ensure you always get your best cut, best colour and best style no matter which salon you visit.
Be sure to research your hairdresser and their salon before you book. It is so much easier these days to really get a feel for what they stand for and how well they do their job. Be sure to check out their social media and read their online reviews to help form a complete picture. A quick look at our online presence immediately puts our new clients at ease as they can clearly see the people behind the chairs.
Give clear information about what you are looking for when you call to book. You should never feel rushed off the phone or uncomfortable and they should be happy to listen to what your are looking for and any concerns. The salon should strive to match you to the perfect hairdresser for your needs so be sure to answer any questions honestly and be sure to take any advice.
A little bit of prep before your appointment can go a long way. It’s no secret that an inch isn’t always an inch and honey toned highlights aren’t always honey toned highlights to someone else so don’t allow simple miscommunication to damage your visit. Be sure to bring along a few examples of what you are looking for so there can be no confusion about what you really mean.
Your stylist should take the time at the start of your appointment to get to know you and your hair and determine the best approach. This is the time to speak up and let them know things you have and haven’t liked in the past so they can understand your hair history a little better. It can be nerve wracking to put yourself in unknown hands so this time should help put you at ease.
Throughout the appointment your hairdresser should run you through what they are doing and the products they are using, and if not, don’t be afraid to ask! Hairdressers are here to help you and it’s our job to create a comfortable and empowering experience. Most of all, if you aren’t happy with the cut, colour or style, be sure to let them know and to keep that communication open.
Sadly, there are times when it just doesn’t work out in which case, you may need to look elsewhere to find your perfect hair match. As experts in colour correction we have seen it far too many times but if nothing else, we love to be able to restore our clients’ faith in that magical relationship we can all have with our hairdressers.
